Pumpkin Mousse


Pumpkin mousse is a great alternative to pumpkin pie as a dessert and can be made in under 15 minutes. 


This delicious and creamy dessert  is quick and easy to make. It tastes like a light pumpkin cheesecake filling and is nice served with chocolate chips and whipped cream.  You could even serve the mouse in layers in between whipped cream..yum!


200g cream cheese

1 cup pumpkin puree

1 cup double cream

1/4 tspn ground ginger

1/4 tspn ground nutmeg

1/4 tspn all spice

1/4 tspn cinnamon



  • Using a blender, or a hand held one, mix the cream cheese and pumpkin until smooth.
  • Add the remaining ingredients and blend until full combined.
  • Place in a serving dish/glass and decorate to taste.
  • Eat and enjoy!

Serve 4 -6 (depends upon the size of your serving dishes)

    Made this and it was disgusting. Sorry but there is absolutely no sweetness to it whatsoever. Nothing like cheesecake and it is by far the nastiest thing I’ve ever tasted ever. Use pumpkin pie filling or something with sweetness the puree alone is awful. Sorry but I spent the money to make this and threw it in the trash immediately. I followed the recipe exactly. Im very sorry, not trying to be rude but I was very disappointed.

    Any chance you know the nutritional breakdown? Mostly, the total carbs?

      No, I found the pumpkin puree and cream cheese sweet enough. Feel free to add a dash of sweetner if you want to though!

      Yes Pat. We call it double cream, it is referred to as heavy cream. Creamy goodness either way!
